The role of Volpone completely shifts in this chapter. When Volpone looses it with Celia he crosses a line that he seems to have established early in the play -- to only deceive those who deceive themselves.

A face is what a character presents to the world. Mosca's wounded face seems to indicate that his face has been found to be deceptive. Mosca, again, saves the day when he begins to plot with Corbaccio and Voltore against Bonario and Celia. Volpone will seem to return to favor in Act 4.
